Dream house for sale with swimming pool and beautiful garden in a wonderfully tranquil setting
This house really has everything one could wish for a comfortable and peaceful life in the countryside in Central Portugal.
The house is set on a quiet street and the front is built in classical Portuguese style with columns. The alpendre surrounding the property is a traditional Portuguese feature seen especially on homes of quality and enables the house to remain cool throughout the hot summer months.
Through the front door you enter a long corridor with two very spacious and bright bedrooms on the left and right.
Further down the hall is an office that could possibly also serve as a third bedroom and a modern bathroom with two stainless steel sinks, a toilet and a very spacious shower. In the corridor there is also a hatch with folding stairs to the fully insulated attic that could possibly also be converted into additional living space.
Through a door you enter the huge living room with large French windows overlooking the garden at the back, a modern open kitchen with appliances and beautiful black granite work surfaces. This space is heated with a wood-burning stove with a buffer tank that transfers the heat to radiators in the other living spaces. Air conditioning is also provided. The main room is also equipped with efficient underfloor heating, for any unseasonal weather and the solar panel array means that there are no costs for electricity used within the year throughout the property.
The garden door opens onto a large terrace that runs along the side of the house.
Via a few steps you enter the beautiful garden with swimming pool (8 x 4 m) and pond, and a more than spacious outdoor kitchen, your second living room with a view of the garden during the warm summer months. The swimming pool also has separate solar heating panels, thus extending its use beyond the usual summer months.
Next to the living room is also a laundry room, a second entrance hall, and via a spiral staircase you come down into the gigantic basement / garage.
Cars can go down into the garage via a ramp and there is also a very large carport next to the house, suitable for two mobile homes.
The garden is beautifully landscaped and lovingly maintained by the current owners and consists of a number of terraces with fruit trees, palm trees, a pitch for a caravan with its own sanitary block, and a vegetable garden. The garden is fitted with irrigation points throughout, making gardening much easier and all of the fruit and olive trees are well established and fruitful
Behind the plot (3520 m2) is a beautiful piece of unspoilt nature with pine forests and a wonderful view and plenty of silence.
The house has a total area of 125 m2 and an A + energy certificate, thanks to the insulation of the roof, the double glazing (all windows and doors have mosquito nets), and the large automatic solar panels at the front of the house. Some rooms also have air conditioning.
Water is pumped from a well, but tap water is also available.
This house is a gem for those who quickly want a ready-to-go and well-kept modern home in a wonderful piece of paradise. This beautiful house was renovated and extended by the present owners as their "forever home" so no expense was spared on fittings, both externally and internally, including fine wooden doors and the kitchen appliances
The village of Serra is a few kilometers away and still has a bakery and a butcher, a few cafes and a health center, a primary school and even a gas pump and a small hardware store.
For supermarkets, shops and boutiques, schools, a hospital and a more extensive choice of restaurants and cafes or a theater visit you can go to Tomar, where the Convento de Cristo, a Unesco world heritage site, is also worth a visit. In Tomar you will also find a bus and train station. Tomar is 15 minutes away by car.
Lisbon airport is an hour and a half drive away, the Atlantic coast is an hour away by car via perfectly maintained and quiet motorways.
